Reasons to Exhibit

At it’s core, Handmade Chelsea is a celebration and showcase of talented designer-makers. We promote quality and skill by supporting exceptional craft practitioners engaged in all areas of design and craft, both traditional and modern, and we connect them with an affluent, fashionable and discerning audience. The quality of craftsmanship exhibited by our makers is echoed in the way we work both with our exhibitors and our associates. We collaborate with arts organisations to raise the profile of British designers through our shows and we are increasingly conscious of the opportunities we can offer to companies interested in supporting the British design industry.

• Reach an informed and affluent audience in London and surrounding areas

• Be a part of a carefully-curated event with quality exhibitors, sharing the same ethos and providing a coherent brand environment

• Be featured in Marketing and PR campaigns targeting an extensive audience

• Be supported by Handmade in Britain, an organisation with 13 years experience of organising events

• Be part of a very high-quality and visually-pleasing event
